Each year one scholarship is awarded to a graduate student at UW Oshkosh and another to a degree-seeking student at Fox Valley Technical College. The more money we fundraise, the more scholarships we are able to award!

Scholarship Fundraisers 

Throughout the year we organize scholarships in collaboration with local businesses (e.g., Toppers, Benvenuto’s Italian Grill). We also have a year-round SCRIP fundraising program where you can buy gift cards for over 750 businesses and a percent goes to AAUW Oshkosh for women’s scholarships. See how to participate below.


SCRIP is an overall long-term program whereby members purchase or sell to others various vendor gift cards to use at more than 750 top brands for everything on your list. Families, friends and members pay face value for the gift cards. The difference in percent is an instant rebate for AAUW Oshkosh donated by the retailers. It’s fundraising while we shop!
